Many manufacturers offer an outdoor kitchen. I know personally that Heartland offers more than one brand. A few things that must be answered is trailer length, weight and of course budget. We looked closely at a Landmark Charleston but decided to keep the one we have.

You should be looking for bunk house models. They very often have an outside kitchens underneath the bunks.

My Grand Design 323BHS has a sink with hot/cold water, microwave, 2 burner stovetop, 4' refrigerator and a lot of storage in cabinets. I also have a mount on the rear end that swings around the corner for mounting a small LP grill.

We seldom even cook inside--other than reheating in the microwave. The outside kitchen's great.

We also have two small boys and just bought our first 5er this spring. Our short list was the cougar 336BHS and the Chaparral 360IBL which we purchased....admittedly it doesn't have an outdoor kitchen... we wanted the big living space for rainy days more than the extra kitchen and a dorm fridge in the basement compartment keeps the kiddos from running in and out constantly for drinks. The Chaparral 390 does have a small outdoor kitchen and the big living space.

Best advice I can give is physically get in as many units as you can. I can't tell you how many models we loved in pictures,but hated when we really were in them, and vice versa.
